Register in person at your local clerk to vote in Aug. 3 election

Michigan residents who want to vote in their local election next month and have not yet registered can still do so in person at their clerk's offices up to 8 p.m. on Election Day, Aug. 3. Those in the 54 counties with elections who need the location of their clerk's office or local drop boxes, or other voter information, can visit

"With local elections in many jurisdictions under two weeks away, it is not too late to register to vote," said Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson. "Michigan voters have multiple options to ensure their voices are heard in their local communities and registering to vote is the first step."
To register to vote in person, residents must bring their proof of residency to their local election clerk's office, where they can also be issued a ballot, vote it, and return it to the clerk in the same visit.

Those who already have a ballot at home should fill it out, sign the back of the envelope and return it in person to their clerk's office or to a drop box as soon as possible. Registered voters can vote early with an absentee ballot at their clerk's office now through Aug. 2, or at their polling place on Election Day, Aug. 3.
